just adds to this ridiculous outdated cold war story on top it. he we strayed america and he went to russia. what what we've seen is the public opinion polling, and people actually care about their privacy. this long term we're going to see. this is what people wanted to know, this story was important, and people cared about it. >> before we go to the polls, people say, oh, yeah, he's going to the countries that don't even love freedom. well, if we loved freedom we might want to protect whistle blowers who give information to congress that congress didn't even have. >> usually they call that an inspector general's reports, and in this case it took a whistle blower for them to figure out what they should have been told. >> it's fascinating because when it comes to polling i feel like the u.s. population is fickle because they keep changing their minds about edward snowden. is he a whistle blower, is he traitor? a recent poll shows 55% o respondents consider him a whistle blower, and only 34% view him as a traitor. it's sad because his biggest fear is that he would leak this informa

, because i'm law abiding. well, this is why -- this is america. we don't do this in america. these are our civil liberties being trampled on, and with each passing day, it's justify amazing the new revelations. this really is a positive thing. cenk: well, the problem is we do do it in america now. >> we do it in america, yes. cenk: and it changes the definition of america. president obama talks about the american people and balancing. >> we should be skeptical about the potential encroachments on privacy. none of the revelations show that government has actually abused these powers, but they're pretty significant powers. if we can make sure that there's competence on the part of the american people that there's oversight, then i think we can make sure we are properly balancing our liberty and security. cenk: here we go again, david. i'm all about balance, i'm the guy in the middle, and, you know, we got the security and liberty, would you have just balanced it perfectly. golly, gee, i'm so worried about the abuse that could happen, but i'm assured none of it has happened and i'm backing it

this" on al jazeera america. >> good thing to mix with soda, right? >> nobody told me i was on. >> we used to have a drinking game in the control room. nobody drank, but we had certain things that everybody would say and i would yell drink and everybody would pretend to take a drink. one was cenk saying "one more question." everyone would grown and pretend to drink, the other one was anytime michael shure mentioned a dead president. cenk: here's something our audience didn't know. when we had deserrano as the sponsor, well, after john finishes his show in about an hour. >> way to screw up john's line. cenk: i thought in order to keep it real, i should actually try it before we did the first sponsorship, right? i had forgotten to try it the night before and there was a bar down stairs from the new york studio. i literally right before the show went and took a shot of it before going on air, so that i could say oh, when i said on air it's delicious, i wanted to actually mean it and if it wasn't, i wasn't going to say it. you see what i'm saying? >> was it delicious? cenk: it was! >> the

donors, et cetera, but nonetheless, you know, i mean, jayar, as a black man in america, you got enough issues, but then if you need a transplant, it turns out you're only 50% as likely to get it as a white person. it's got to be a little frustrating. >> it is and maybe there's always access to information and the right way to go about these things. if you look at facilities in certain neighborhoods, they're not as inviting or informational based as you would think. they may not know the right way to go about it. there's probably tons of people who don't make it on the list or have access to the list. cenk: that would only make the in connection even worse. we have to leave it right there. remember a possible change of position, he will be getting a heart transplant if they've got one. we're going into a whole different issue. steve king is one of the craziest congressman in the u house and he's been saying things like immigrants have cantaloupe cavs. he's outdone himself this time p.m. what did he say now? we'll tell you when we come back. cenk: back on "the young turks." as usual, qui

government, so overall when you take all the homes, three out of five thunderstorms now in america are backed up by the taxpayers. joe, i find that crazy. does that make me a conservative that i think it's crazy that taxpayers are backing everybody -- why would i? i've got nothing to do with them. >> you sound like you're getting ready to qualify for a job... you have a very significant point here. to ana's point, two things are going on. there are a lot of flippers and bank property investors looking at the market here, that has led to 19% increase in the number of flippers who are buying homes this year as opposed to last year, and a 74% increase over the number of people who are buying homes to flip them, compared to 2011. that's fine if you're looking at a rental market, but not so fine if looking at an ownership market, where you are inflating the price by withholding inventory. the theory is that you're trying to create psychological demand, if the price goes up, people assume it's valuable, you get more people on the market trying to buy the same thing. the problem that we have here in

the fact that his son is in the ad. we're not talking about middle america, we're talking about new york city and it's very different when it comes to race relations compared to the rest of the country. this will play well especially people have been critical of stop and frisk. i had like to see him win even though i don't live in new york city. cenk: there is a huge number of minorities that have suffered under stop and frisk. even if you think it's great, they don't think it's great, and they vote, too. he says i'm going to fire ray kelly and bring in a new police commissioner. roth man, go. >> let me be a bit cynical here. "the new york times" poll showed physical tie between deblasio and anthony weeper in the back. african-americans, dead last, even anthony wiener still has the support of 15% of african-americans. it used to be higher. eliot, it's ridiculous. he's got a real problem with the african-american vote. this feels like a play in the african-american vote to propel him into the likely run off that will be held. cenk: that's exactly what it is. you're right, and i think it's
